Approval of licences

In some cases, even a non-approved medicine (e.g. a drug under development) may be able to help patients when an approved alternative cannot be found in Sweden. The Swedish Medical Products Agency can, at short notice, allow prescription of a medicine to an individual patient by issuing a special licence. For veterinary medicines licence may be given for an individual patient or an animal species, thus e.g. allowing the use of medicines approved in other EU countries.
